A Response to Acts 29 Bill Riedel and Shaun Cross on When Church Planting Harms a City

A post at The Gospel Coalition by Acts 29 Bill Riedel and Shaun Cross brings about this article. The pastors from Redemption Hill D.C. and Union Church explore gentrification but then ignore the fact that Redeemer Arlington has done that very thing. Its spiritually gentrified not just Arlington but the greater Washington, D.C. area. This blog is proof of that as it was started out of an incident of spiritual abuse that came from a person in leadership in Redeemer Arlington  Continue reading

The Disturbing and Cult-Like Behavior of Acts 29 Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia is Adversely Affecting Lives

Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia is a key Acts 29 church in Virginia’s capitol and the East Coast of the United States. This is a look at a church that is allegedly trying to control communication with family members, as well as members accepting solid-paying jobs. In addition college students are stuck in harsh membership covenants where they are giving money to Remnant while struggling to make rent. This also looks at an Acts 29 church that allegedly does not believe in military chaplains at all. The Wondering Eagle poses the question as to why the Southern Baptist Convention is planting churches like Remnant? Who is going to help those forward deployed in combat zones such as Afghanistan and Iraq? What does the SBC Chaplaincy believe about churches like Remnant that are discouraging people from becoming military chaplains?

A Personal Reflection on Eric Simmons Redeemer Church of Arlington

A personal reflection on Redeemer Arlington. I want to look at some issues in this church based upon my own experience both with Andrew White and the leadership. I also touch on the debate about Sovereign Grace being a cult, or cult like as well as the personality cult which prevails in Neo-Calvinism.  Finally this looks at the issue of having “right beliefs” or sound doctrine in the context of not having action to back it up. Remember what James said about faith lacking works. Continue reading

Wanted: Stories about Acts 29 Corruption, Inappropriate Church Discipline, Membership Covenant Issues, Church Implosions and Polity Problems in the Denomination

A brief overview of the Acts 29 network and a request for information. This blog is going to cover and write about Acts 29 both in the Washington, D.C. area, The Village Church, and elsewhere. This post is requesting information on Acts 29 corruption, polity issues, problems at The Village Church, questionable church discipline, along with Acts 29 implosions. Its my contention that the Acts 29 network is struggling with the DNA from Mark Driscoll. This I would suggest has proven itself in what Matt Chandler’s church did with Karen Hinkley and the murky removal of Darrin Patrick from The Journey in St. Louis. If you have an Acts 29 story please contact me.  Continue reading
